After countless emails asking me to produce more things for primary age kiddos – we have finally done it!
We have come up with learning packages for the Old Testament! We have three packages so far and many more coming! Each package has three to four lessons in it – and some lessons have a learning activity and group activity. These are really great for family scripture study and family home evening!
These have been carefully designed to not only teach the valuable stories and doctrines but to also teach critical skills to help your children to become more confident and able to understand the scriptures. These packages are designed to help your children discover the stories and doctrines themselves! 🙂
Each set of lessons come with a sheet of teaching suggestion that also highlights the specific skills that are being learned. Such as:
These are good for ages 8 and up (even your teenagers!). Your younger children will need you to stand by and help them through the activities as they learn all of the skills they need. These can be great experiences for you as you realize the strengths and abilities your child has along with the areas they need some help with.
These are also a natural fit for primary lessons.
Here are what some of them look like:
This lesson is part of package #3. There is a personal learning activity and a group/family activity.
The personal activity helps teach about when Abraham and Sarah found out they were going to have a baby, and focuses on the skill of scripture comprehension (understanding what the scriptures are saying). So if you have children that have a hard time understanding scripture language – that is what these activities are designed for!
In the group activity you will build an altar as your children answer questions about when Abraham was to sacrifice Isaac. So your kids search in the scriptures to find the answers so they can put on the next rock or stick. The questions are there for you, with the references and an occasional tidbit of information to help teach your children understand the question.
These packages are full of things like that.
Here are a few pages from package #1.
This package has lessons for the Creation, Adam and Eve and The Law of Sacrifice.
These packages focus on teaching your kids to look up words they don’t understand, scripture comprehension and using the Bible Dictionary.
You can find this package HERE. There are lots more pictures there too.
This is package #2
This package has lessons for Enoch and the City Zion, Noah, Abraham and the Abrahamic Covenant.
You can find this package (and more pictures) HERE.
This is package #3.
This package has lessons for Abraham and Lot, when Sarah bore Isaac, when Abraham was asked to sacrifice Isaac and the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.
Lots of skills taught in these packages! 🙂
